BitlBee is an IRC to other IM-chat-networks gateway created by Wilmer van der Gaast and others. BitlBee acts like an IRC server. You can connect to the server with your favourite IRC-client and start chatting with your friends on AIM, ICQ, MSN, Yahoo! and Jabber. Everybody in your buddylist appears as a normal IRC user in the channel #BitlBee. You can start a conversation with a buddy like they are real IRC users. BitlBee is licensed under the term of the GNU General Public License.
When you connect to a BitlBee server, you'll join the channel #BitlBee automatically, in the nicklist there is you and a user called root. Root is like an IRC bot, it listens to you and it'll help you further. Say 'help' in control channel and you will be able to talk to your friends soon.
